This is a rather embarrassing confession being that I write for a blog about shoes, but until today I had never shopped at 6pm.com. Then, while watching the Olympics and shopping for shoes (yay multitasking!), I came upon 6pm.com and the prices blew my mind! The sales are incredible, and the selection of sizes is impressive! After a few hours of shopping, I narrowed it down to my favorite shoes with amazing prices to match. And, of course, I had to share!
These heels by Faryl Robin fulfill all my 1940′s dreams!
I can always use another pair boots, especially Frye’s. The burgundy leather is so stylish!
Recently, I’ve been loving all of Michael Kors’ shoes. These red flats are so sassy!
This week I am traveling on business and wish I was packing these Cole Haan slingbacks!
And finally, the cutest pair of kitten heels courtesy of Delman.
Hello Shoe Lovers!
I’m FancyFeet, the newest shoe lover in town! I dream of a life spent in heels, the higher the better. But due to terrible balance and a life that requires walking everywhere, this height remains a luxurious pipedream.
Being resigned to flats on all but the most special occasions, I have become a lover of the ballet flat. Delmans are a current favorite. The shoes are well-made and classic! The Cruise-C is so cute and available in a number of colors. I love the quilting and copper accents!
I work from home, and most days you can find me in Toms flats. While the corduroy styles I favor are not currently available, Toms sells so many other styles that keep getting better every season. The fact the Toms gives a shoe to a child in need for every shoe purchased makes me want to buy every pair available.
I’m totally liking the Barletta Cordones. Wool shoes just seem so cozy this time of year!
For about seven years I have been looking for the perfect boot! I have settled for lesser varieties, but always been disappointed. My ideal boot does not have a zipper, can be worn with tights or jeans, and has a reasonable heel. This is, apparently, an almost impossible wish list. On Black Friday, I walked into a department store and immediately spotted Coach’s Fayth boot in gray (I could only find black online). After trying the boots on (a perfect fit!), I had to have them! If these boots were a man, I would marry him on the spot!
As a regular reader of Shoe Blog, I’m so excited to join the team! I’m looking forward to sharing my favorite shoes, sales, and stores with everyone! It’s also a great excuse to buy more shoes!
Saturday was a beautiful day here, Shoebloggers. So what did I do with it? I spent it all—from 8:00 to midnight, with one half-hour break in the middle—in Central Park picnicking and frolicking, but mostly waiting in line for and then attending the Public Theater’s “Shakespeare in the Park” production of Hamlet.
The day was fun, the play was fine, but in addition to some melodramatic overacting and questionable directing choices (why, oh why is Ophelia singing her crazy lines… so… very… slowly?), there was one horrid crime of production that I could not overlook. A pair of shoes.
Yes, readers, I was distracted from Shakespeare by a pair of shoes.
Hideous pink wedges, to be exact, worn by Lauren Ambrose-as-Ophelia along with this little sundress, which you can’t see too well in this photo. Trust me, the dress is the exact same color as that shawl and the exact same color as Lauren’s pretty pale skin. It is not a good fashion look.
But fine… they wanted to dress Ophelia in shades of pink all the way through the play, even though she’s being played by a redhead, who’d probably look better in other colors anyway. Whatever. Questionable costuming choices I can handle. But not bad shoes.
I’m sorry to not have a picture of these nasty baby pink numbers to show you readers, but I present two shoes that, if hybridized, would create something quite close to the Ophelia monstrosities.
The first is the Paris Hilton (yes… *shudder*… that Paris Hilton) Hamptons wedge. The second is the Corso Como Pet. Please don’t be fooled by the fact that the Pet platforms are actually cute (because they are). They are here to provide the strappy quality of the Ophelia shoes. But the color and the overly-girly styling and the wedge are all in line with that terrible Hamptons.
Lest you think, gentle readers, that I was alone in this, I will point to the fact that I was there with two friends, both of whom agreed. One is a regular Shoeblog reader herself. The other is her boyfriend who reads Shoeblog only when I point him to the posts about superhero movie shoes or Converse All Stars. And even this non-shoe-fanatic man was distracted by the Pink Meanies.
So, I ask you, what in god’s name was the reason for taking a woman who started out in a snappy trench-coat with gloves, a pretty head scarf, and boots like these classic, elegant Delman Dharma’s
to something that looked like the sickeningly sweet dream shoe of a vat of cotton candy?
All I know is that “to sleep, perchance to dream” will only be the rub if the dreams aren’t populated by such egregious footwear choices as the one picked by the costumer for this production.

I was browsing the shoe stores these days and was dazed with the possibilities and styles, and it got me thinking: what if I had to rebuild my shoe wardrobe from scratch? What if I had nothing, absolutely nothing to wear, and I would be forced to order shoes from one place and one place only to save me from this disgrace? (In this fantasy of mine, I don’t have shoes but I have plenty of money left to buy whatever I want. Ahem. Work with me here.). So I decided to create this little mind experiment and rebuild my wardrobe from scratch using one shoe store at a time. I need to cover my bases–I need dress shoes, warm-weather shoes, casual shoes, dog-walking shoes, career shoes, evening shoes, sensible shoes. Right? Right.
The first obvious place is, of course, Zappos. Here’s what I would pick up there, for starters, for the spring-summer season:
1. A. Testoni Giancarla red patent loafers, $376.
4. Sergio Rossi Origami kitten heel pumps, $500.
5. Helle Comfort Ollie wedge, $160.
6. Ecco Performance Yarrah, $104.
7. Marc Jacobs color-block flat sandals, $353.
8. Delman Crest-V bejeweled velvet flat, $354.
9. Kate Spade Juliette open-toe slingbacks, $274.
10. Cole Haan Air Gabi boat shoe, $158.
11. Taryn Rose Daelyn gunmetal metallic wedges, $495.
12. Christian Lacroix bejeweled kitten heels, $717.
13. Adidas by Stella McCartney sport flats, $100.
14. Tapeet by Vicini silver and gold flats, $400.
15. Dolce & Gabbana floral canvas flats, $330.
16. Juicy Coutoure Lillian espadrilles, $230.
17. Giuseppe Zanotti Mirror Lilia open-toe flats, $454.
18. Paul Green ‘Soul’ in leopard, $237 (although, shame on you, Zappos: the same shoe is half off at Piperlime! I guess it would be a good time to call them on it and get that 10% off the lowest price you can find on the Internet, right?)
19. Paul Smith Laney floral espadrille, $178.
Mmmmm….I’m drunk with shoes right now… I think I’m going to lie down, or I’ll buy all of them right now! Wait, I won’t: the grand total for this “starter” wardrobe is (drum roll): $6263. Over six thousand dollars. I probably went all crazy in the Couture section of Zappos, but I couldn’t help myself!
Later this week I’ll explore more eye-candy at other stores, and what it would take to get a “starter” spring-summer shoe wardrobe there. Stay tuned!
It’s Monday morning. You’ve got a case of the Monday morning blues because you slept in the entire weekend and now your sleep cycle is abnormal, the weekend was too busy and you didn’t get a chance to unwind, or maybe your voice is hoarse from screaming during the NFL playoff games. In any case, Bluefly wants to cheer us up with their Delman shoe sale. Pretty, quality shoes at 80% off? That’s sure to bring a smile to any shoe lover’s face.

There’s nothing bitter about these bow tie peep toe flats in bitter chocolate. Originally $295 now $48.

Another classic, the black pointy toe pump; Retails for $250, now $60.
